quorum call: mr. lieberman: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from connecticut. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that further proceedings under the quorum call be dispensed with. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. lieberman: i thank the chair. mr. president, i have come to the floor to express my own sense of encouragement about the statements made this afternoon by president obama and senator mcconnell, which indicate that the negotiations to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff are making progress. and we're not there yet, but they're making progress. and i'm really encouraged by that. i've heard over the last couple of days a familiar phrase invoked many times, and it is that "no deal is better than a bad deal." and i suppose it's often true that no deal is better than a bad deal, but in the case of the fiscal cliff, no deal is the worst deal because the government will go over the fiscal cliff and will take almost every american with us. almost every family that pays taxes now will pay higher taxes. people's jobs will immediately be p

? >> the puerto rican voters in new jersey, new york, connecticut, massachusetts are a very -- they're among the most liberal democratic voters there are. they voted for obama 80, 90%. they were the most vocal democratic constituency opposed to the war in iraq in 2003. veryn, they're a distinctive part of our political landscape. they're not going to change. latino democrats in coastal california, it's just really hard to see where you get -- republicans can hope to get more than 25 or 30% out of that big chunk. in the rio grande valley in texas, in chicago and its suburbs you're starting to talk -- it starts to add up. i think in cuba a new dynamic has set in. i think obama's opening of travel to cuba has totally changed the game for the way cubans think about it. so you're talking about large chunks of this electorate that are solidly democratic and there's a solid base there, so the game has been and will continue to be about a fairly small margin of this electorate in key places. >> okay. >> i'll do these as quickly as i can. i'm still enjoying what happened in november of 2012 to think
york, the people of connecticut in particular, others as well, have sustained a very, very damaging blow both corporately and individually. we need to act on that. historically supplementals are not paid for, are passed so that we can meet the immediate need. mr. crowley will speak to that. but let me say this. the answer to your question is it's part of the math. if we're going to put our country on a fiscally sustainable path, we're going to have to consider all the expenditures we made, whether we paid for them initially or not, we're going to have to put that into the math and it needs to be a part of the agreement. i've said this is a math problem. certainly the dollars we spend will have to be accounted for and will have to be paid for over a longer period of time. but we can amortize that immediate expense that we need to make on behalf of the severely adversely affected damaged areas, we need to make that expenditure now. but we need to pay for that over the longer term. so to that extent, yes, it will be part of the -- for my own standpoint, part of the math that will have
